Institute presentation

The Birmingham arm of the FemNAT-CD project will take place in the School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham, which recently received the Times’ University of the Year (2013-2014) award. The University of Birmingham is a world leading University, which offers high-standard teaching and research in most major disciplines. Inter-disciplinary work is an established feature of its research.

The School of Psychology is one of the largest and leading psychology departments in the UK. The School is well known for its work in cognitive, computational, and developmental neuroscience, developmental psychopathology, clinical and forensic psychology as well as the study of neurodevelopmental disorders. In the last Research Assessment Exercise (2008), the School of Psychology ranked 3rd in the UK alongside Oxford and Cambridge. A quarter of research activities were rated 4-star and were considered “world-leading” while more than 80% research achieved “internationally excellent” standard. The School of Psychology supports state-of-the art translational research with basic scientists and clinicians working closely together in a multidisciplinary environment.

The School of Psychology provides state-of-the-art research facilities such as a research-dedicated 3T Philips scanner at the Birmingham University Imaging Centre (http://www.buic.bham.ac.uk/) and three EEG labs. High-profile staff members working in the School of Psychology and the BUIC include recognised leaders in functional and structural neuroimaging, developmental, cognitive and computational neuroscience, cognitive, clinical and forensic psychology, and developmental psychopathology. Crucially, these researchers regularly collaborate with each other and engage in interdisciplinary work with other Schools within the University and outside, thus providing the ideal environment for the FemNAT-CD project.
